BREW: Bridging Research and Education Workshop

The Bridging Research and Education Workshop (BREW) will be held virtually on July 13, from 1-3 p.m. EDT.  The workshop will focus on yeast experiments for undergraduate teaching labs and approaches for bridging research and education. It will include ~6 talks followed by breakout rooms for interactions with each of the speakers. We are particularly interested in the following topics:

    • Yeast experiments for undergraduate teaching labs
    • Research projects that can be performed online (e.g. bioinformatics)
    • Education research data addressing diversity and inclusion

If you would like to be considered for a talk, please send a short abstract describing of your topic to Mary Miller by May 15, 2020. Please indicate BREW in the subject line.

To be added to the BREW mailing list email Orna Cohen-Fix at ornac@niddk.nih.gov. Also, if you can think of ways of advertising this workshop, and in particular among professors in primarily undergraduate institutions, please let Orna know.

More details regarding registration (which will be free) and how to connect via Zoom will be available as we get closer to that date.
